Using iMac 10.6 and fully upgraded.

Mac Mail was unable to connect because of a bad username/password.

1. I double checked and re-entered my username and password, still had issue
2. Went to icloud.com and verified the username/password was correct, and it was good
3. I then decided to uncheck KeyChain from iCloud in System Preferences

But that didn't work and now whenever I open mac mail i get a popup saying I need to activate KeyChain in iCloud.

So I went to iCloud in System preferences to check KeyChain, I enter username/password and it comes up as invalid but I do get a passcode to enter from my phone but it wont get to that part as its saying that I'm entering incorrect username/password even though they are correct.

Is there any ideas that can help me with this, it is very frustrating.

Well i had just figured it out but don't delete just incase another person has this issue.

I resolved it by removing 2step verification, after that the username/password wasn't seen as incorrect and Keychain was able to be checked in iCloud.
